      Yusuf Saad Kamel, formerly Gregory Konchellah, runs 3:32.83, and with that, I believe he becomes only the 4th man in history to have run sub 1:43 and sub 3:33. Kamel also becomes the only member of this select group who is not British, as the others are Coe, Cram, and Elliot.
      Kamel, with his 1:42.79 and 3:32.83, appears to have the tools to be a threat in championship 1500s, but unlike his father, he does not have a history of performing at his best at major championships.

        nice gain from 3'34.4 before '08 to today

        will need bit better than 3'32.8 in the future to be consistent threat

          Thanks for pointing this out - interesting stat.

          Tried to find anyone else recent/current who is close: Baala 3:28.98 and 1:43.15. Maybe others, but he's the only one that caught my eye.

            morceli had 1'44.79, but didn't run event much

            ngeny again, didn't run 800 much, but his 2'11.96 is certainly <1'43 ability ( split 1'44.6 in his 1k )

            bayi also ran 1'44 as did walker & again not regular 800 guys

            ovett also didn't run many 800s after '80

            ryun ran 1'44.3wr which has to be worth close to 1'43 on modern tracks with decent pacing ( ran -ve splits )

            cruz,i think was just shy with a ?3'33pb

            it's a great stat, <1'43/<3'33, but mostly predicated on most recent top 1500 guys not bothering with the 800
